“You took my senior pictures back in the 80’s” were the first words out of her mouth when I introduced myself to Jamie the owner of Doe’s Place. So I gave her a big hug and made another great friend. Pictured we see Max, Jamie and Olivia two of the bartenders here. So where did the name “Doe’s” come from? Dorthy Woodgate, Jamie’s grandmother opened a bar over on “D” street back in the mid 60’s then moved here to main street in the mid 70’s and sometime later her daughter Jamie took over as owner and manager and bartender, and just a great friend to so many wonderful patrons over so many years. Right there on main street across from the Fremont Tribune building in Historic Downtown Fremont, of course.
